Find a friend to help you measure. Pour some wine first!
Measure bust, waist, hips, and a few additional measurements for the perfect fit.
Watch the video to see Antoinette, and her friend Marianna, demonstrate each measurement.
Please use a cloth tape measure.
Take your measurements wearing underwear or thin layers you would wear under the garment.
Please do not add extra inches to the measurement! Antoinette will make fit adjustments according to each design. In your profile please include your fit and style preferences.
When measuring, keep the tape measure taut and straight all around body without letting the tape droop down.

Basic Measurements Please add these measurements to your style profile
Run tape around body at middle of bustline, going straight across bust, not following cleavage contour. This measurement is usually different from your bra size.
Run tape around body at narrowest part of waist area. This could be just under your bust if you are short waisted.
Run tape around body at widest part of hips. This will be roughly 7" to 8" below waistline.
Additional Measurements Add to your profile to help with fit issues or for fitted styles
Upper Arm So the sleeve isn't too tight
Have a friend help you. Measure with arm out and muscle flexed. Run tape around widest part of upper arm, at muscle, halfway between shoulder and elbow.
Cross Back So the back isn't tight across the shoulders
Have a friend help you. Across width of back from armhole/sleeve seam to armhole/sleeve seam, a few inches down from shoulder.
Shoulder to Waist For any style with waist area design details
From top of shoulder at bra strap, down over bust following contour of body to waist.
Shoulder to Knee For dresses to make sure the length is correct
Have a friend help you. From top of shoulder at bra strap, down over bust following contour of body to knee.
The size chart here is just a guide as the various styles will fit a range of sizes according to how fitted or loose they are.
The bust measurement is the most reliable constant as usually that is where clothes are most fitted.
Knit clothing stretches and drapes to varying degrees so that will also affect the sizing of each style.
